How do you take care of your skin?

Lip Sourmolivann, 19, student at Royal University of Phnom Penh
“From my point of view, skin health is absolutely vital for beauty. Therefore, my technique is to take baths as often as I can. I take a bath at least four times per day. And each time, I always use liquid soap since it has an alluring smell. But more importantly, it makes the skin much softer than using regular bar soap. Moreover, I change those liquid soaps, so that I can see which one is the most effective for my skin.”

“I have not cared much for my skin health since I am so busy with both my studies and work. However, my favourite technique that always provides me with the most visible benefits is eating vegetables, especially green ones. Also, drinking water is another way to keep my skin healthy, and I can see that it works. I always drink a lot of water for sure.”

“People have different types of skin; some many have used and changed techniques. There’s no definite answer as to what works for whom. Anyway, to me, I always protect my skin with one very easy way: lotion. I always use lotion on my body after I have taken a bath. And, I take bath three times per day, so I use lotion three times per day. And I found out that it is very effective for my skin health. ”

“Honestly, I have not really cared much for my skin; though, I have understood that beauty is very important for everyone, especially ladies. But, I’m so busy it’s hard to find the time. What I have done to keep my skin healthy is trying not to go out during the day-time, especially around noon, to protect my skin from sun damage. But, if I have to go out at that time, which happens often, I need to have a jacket and gloves to bring along.”

Nong Darany, 15, part-time student at Norodom’s School
“Similar to many others, I usually wear a jacket when going out in the sun and I always use lotion. But, one more special thing I do to keep my skin nice is a scrub at least once per week. Scrubbing is great for the skin because it clears dead skin and makes the skin softer and smoother. As a result, my skin seems brighter and clearer than my other friends.”
